A woman has given birth to octuplets (eight babies) by cesarean section at Kaiser Permanente hospital south of Los Angeles.

She becomes just the second person recorded to have ever delivered a set of living octuplets.

The six boys and two girls were weighed in between 1.8lbs (800grams) and 3.4lbs each, are all said to be doing well.

46 individual medical workers were needed for the delivery.

A hospital spokeswoman described the deliveries as "truly amazing". The babies, delivered early will be in incubators for at least six weeks.

Here's video from the octuplets media conference:
